Self Portrait

These "selfies" were taken over the summer, I can tell because a. I have freckles from the sun and b. I remember the day I took them. Life has been FLYING by, this semester at school went by like a flash of light. There is now a lack of freckles and colour on my face, because (OMG!) it is Christmas in 2 weeks. What the what?...I keep wanting to post more but I find it challenging with school + work. I will have 4 weeks during the holidays, looking forward to a lighter work load without projects due. I want to try to make a few resolved drawings while I am on break. Personal work that is for me, without guidelines and deadlines & I want to read this book by Amy Poehler. I think she is out-of-this-world hilarious and have only heard great things about it. It's also part of the book club over on A Beautiful Mess for the month of December and I've read three books from their selection + loved them all!

Peace to all 



It's all coming to an end

I am going to blatantly ignore the fact that I have not posted in over 6 months and just go on as if I had been a good blogger all summer long! Here we go, so I spent a day near the water with my best friend in a nice spot that is free by bike and not too busy during the week. I seem to forget how accessible these wonderful outdoors spaces are, and indeed do not take advantage of them enough. Now that the season is slowly coming to an end I have an urge to take it all in before it's all frozen and covered in snow. I love the feeling of change that comes with September, I don't know if it's getting back into school or the cooler nights, but it's the best. 

Hope all is swell x


Clicks In A Day

 I need to take more photos. It might be the weather or just that time of year but I just haven't taken out my camera lately. This past Sunday I grabbed it and decided to take photos throughout the day. It was nice uploading them and adding them to my files. My last photo upload was over a month ago :O. Crazy, I know. 

1. Painting I am working on 2. Mandatory mirror "selfie" 3. Favourite wool scarf, tribal pants and camera strap 4. My mother's cat 5. The current state of my fridge


I can't stop listening to Banks single "Change" - it's just too good, like most of her music, dark and soulful! 



As a child I used to love watching my mother re-arrange the furniture. Every few months she would announce that she was going to "switch" things up. I loved the way she would move the couch and then sit on it contemplating her next move. This simple switch up would often lead to a space that felt completely refreshed. I love interiors for this reason. When I watch a movie I find myself gazing at the decor all the time. Looking at photos of other peoples homes inspires me so much... here is a beautiful concrete, modern interior. I love the lower design aspects and those brown leather chairs are insane. 

Interior from FVF one of the best source for unique interiors.


Checking in.

The year is flying by already and I can't wait to be off school so I can blog more. 
I miss it so much because I only get to upload things every now and again + the past winters of my life have not been this dreadful. Come to think of it - they most likely were, I am just being a little girl about this. Ha! (gotta suck it up) Anyway, I hope everyone is enjoying themselves where ever you are. Here are some current things I like, want and dream about. 

- A blog I am obsessed with right now is The Sprouted Kitchen

- Such an awesome Makeup Bag by Alphabet Bags

- This collection by Another Feather is beautiful. 

- I really want to try making a DIY Macrame plant holder. 

- My next apartment will have an abundance of natural light like this place .

My blog got a makeover and it's really really happy about the whole change ;)
